Tyebe are you hiding behind the ferns……well get outta there girl. I’ll chase you around the backyard, cause I’m the monster from the lane. ARRRGGGHH! He’ll never find her in the ferns. She went in the house about an hour ago. Budd fell asleep in the garden and lost track of her. mol Younguns! I think Budd’s bellowing for me but I’m tired so I don’t give a whisker what he wants.
Where is that girl. Ohhhh the bed looks inviting. This is the place for my art.
This is a great place for a mid-afternoon nappy pooh.
Mom used Lunapic Illusion at 53% for this effect. It’s bold but I do stand out.
Come see us at Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty. Better yet jump in and join us with your art of the day.
SHOKO…..BLACK BUDD……….GARDEN GREEN TYEBE………ROYAL BLUE
We haven’t been in the Lane for a couple of months. Woohoo! Budd, Budd….wake up. Get your walking booties on, we’re all going for a walk in the Lane.
Hurry up you two. Quite sniffing every little blade of grass or it’ll be dark before you get to the falling down house!
We’s hurrying Shokos. Come on Budd….get your paws movin’.
Ah! The smell of fall is in the air. It’s getting cold. Look the Mountain Ash is loaded with berries again. A hard winter’s in store for this area.
Tyebe and Budd will never find me in here. mol Hissss….you found me Tyebe.There’s no fur growing between me’s claws Shokos.
Mom wants us to head home. So let’s go, gang.
Already, it’s time to go home!No, I’s don’t wanna go!
Let’s go home, Tyebe. Shoko said something about it being Thankful Thursday so let’s tell everyone about our adventure in the Lane.
That was a fun walk even if I had to wear a leash. We are so thankful mom took us out for a walk in the Lane. We are joining Brian’s Home for Thankful Thursday. Just click on the badge and be taken to see the other thankful anipals. Me’s sure am tired now.
How did you like our stroll down the street Kali? It was ok….not very warm though. If you hadn’t been resting your head on my butt and had your paws over my legs, I would have felt a chill. You sound like an old lady Kali.I do not! You asked how I liked the stroll, for hairy nip’s sake. Who’s Hairy Nip? Is he someone I know? I want to meet him, Kali. Oh fur..sistehs!!Wipe your paws, Shoko! You weren’t brought up in a Cattery. You sound ticked sis….what’s ahappen-ning widt youse…big girl? I’m bored stiff Shoko. I know what you mean Kali. We have to get involved in something indoors…..it’s no fun out here. I guess you’re right Shoko. Really, it is up to us to entertain ourselves. Mom can’t play all the time she has to clean our bedding, feed us, get treats, buy us fun toys and then dad’s going to want the same, so I guess she is pretty busy.
I’m going to look for my *Paw a Treat* toy. Found it.
Pretty well cleaned the *Paw a Treat* out….I’m good!
This doorknob is filthy dirty, I’ll clean it for mom…lickity, lick, lick. Now for a nap,,,,coming Shoko? Whoa Kali that knob really shines. I can see your face in it sis. My tongue’s rather tired now.Let’s have a well deserved nap Kali. We can dream of the warm summer winds.
When we last left Shoko she was shattered by the knowledge she has grey furs at the base of her tail. We tune in today to find Einstein’s reaction to Shoko’s devastating news about getting old. Kali on the other paw is rather enjoying Shoko’s turmoil. Payback time for all those sneak attacks and stolen treats.
What else could I do to cover my grey, Kali…something that’s cheap. I don’t have the money for a dye for just 2 inches on my tail. I know mom wouldn’t agree with it. Well, there is one other option that won’t cost anything. What is it Kali? Mom has felt pens for labelling food. I’ll bet she’d lend you her black one. Not a bad idea Kali.Mom would have to colour me….she has thumbs….we don’t. Mom can you colour me with your felt pen and cover the grey? Do you think this is such a good idea? What will happen when you go out in the snow or when your sister slops water on the floor and you decide to sit down? Cwap! I never thought of that. I guess the black would change the snow’s colour and make a black mark on the floor. It’s rude to laugh at my problem Kali! I can’t help it Shoko, you’re such a drama queen….jeepers! You know Einstein…….just talk to him and tell him about the grey furs. I’ll bet ya tonight’s dehydrated chicky treats he understands. I guess I have no choice. *sigh*I had mom write to Einstein and I was so worried but I received his e-mail so fast, I couldn’t believe it. This is the gist of the e-mail :
You could go Green and I would still call you my sweetest kitty dear! If your fur was falling out I would gather it and we would while away the hours taping it back on. That is how I love thee.
So you were right Kali. He understood and I worried for nothing. Did mom step
on my toys on the floor in the bedroom, Kali? Naw, I kicked them further under
the bed. She’ll find them when she cleans…MOL. You owe me your treats tonight.
Shoks. No problem Kali…they’re all yours. I’m too tired to argue. This lack of
sleep is not good, I may go greyer from the tension. *yawn*
Mom went off for another dose of mouse’s protein yesterday. She’s gone for hours when she gets this stuff. I guess she has to catch the mouse and someone must help her put the protein the mouse gives her into the medication.She says she goes to a place called the horse pittel. Sounds terribly gross to me but then I’m not fond of horses.
Big place mom. Not many peeps. Was this after hours? Just early….there’s not much I can say about it. It has lots of mice though. Good to know.
The nerd sis make her sit while they drip this protein into her veins. Mom says it can hurt if they don’t hit the vein quickly with the needle. They must drip this protein through a tube with a sharp needle on it. Eww….I wouldn’t like that.
Now, she is just very tired so we’ll let her sleep. Shhh…Shoko quit throwing your mice at mom, let her be. Come on Shoko let’s stare at her and see if she grows whiskers after the mouse’s protein. MOL Sounds good to me Kali.
Let’s take a stroll through the Lane. Our neighbours worked and got rid of some trees earlier during the summer. There was a loud racquet for days coming from this backyard. This is what they added. A wire fence or a section of it. Looks like some peeps are ready to play hockey out here. These folk had a B & E early last year and this is their protection now, a new fence where everybody can walk around it.
The lane dressed for fall in orange and yellow with a tad of green. These trees are tired of the orange and yellow and are darned near nekked already!
I’m coming mom. Slow down I gotta read the newspaper and find out who’s been here. Spot the Siamese! MOL Pretty good hiding place, eh? I still can’t catch a mouse though….I’ve tried everything…cwap! Ahhhh….feels good to lay down.
Kali is doing her best impression of Robert De Niro in Taxidriver, “You lookin’ at ME?”
Here is a slightly blurry picture of Cow-Kitty looking proud as punch. Yep, you’re right, this is a pile of dirt on Showkali Island. Cow-Kitty was sleeping in here when mom got up this morning so she took him a bowl of Purrfect Bistro Duck Pate. He proceeded to gobble it up and then he buried his bowl. Mom had never seen this before have you?
